As mentioned in earlier post Katkiss is available in XDA forum. It is stable and fast, makes the tablet very usable with updated features of Lollipop.

You need to unlock your tablet (if its not already) and install the latest recovery (TWRP or CWM). All the instructions and required downloads can be found at XDA.

Now Katkiss is on Lollipop v. 5.0.2; Google it, there is plenty of information.

You download the update from the web site, extract it to your SD card, think you then restart your tablet and it does the rest. There is a full set of instructions on the site. Does run quicker and more stable, with more apps available from the play store.
All the best.

I have had a TF101 since release and it is now running kit kat 4.4.4 (katkiss version) @ 1.4 mhz very reliably.

I have changed the charger for one off of Amazon. At over 600g weight it is heavy compared to the 350g of more modern tablets and a screen 140ppi density is only half the latest ones but it still runs everything I throw at it.

It does struggle with 1080p but then the screen is only designed with 720p in mind. During the time I have had it, volume of the sound used to be an issue but the later android releases have fixed that.

Being able to plug it into a keyboard and long battery life of 14/15 hours use makes it still an essential piece of kit for work and play. USB and memory card slot still makes it far more versatile than the latest offerings. I will be using mine for a while yet.

If a person is going to own one of these devices, then you should learn how to fix these issues.

This tablet is old, it runs a Tegra 2 T20... nothing is going to change that.

But if you expect to use this tablet far past its End of Life, then you need to learn how to root. It's very easy these days, as there are a one-click solutions available that even install CWM recovery for you.

Mine is running KatKiss 4.4.4, and I have overclocked it to 1.4Ghz. Buttery smooth KitKat performance, for slightly less battery life.

I recently put a custom 4.4.4 ROM onto my TF101 and now it runs even better than it did when first got it. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to continue using what is otherwise a great tablet. I also have the 300T but prefer the 101 due the speaker arrangement.

I've the tablet for 2 years now.
It's a great tablet and I have had no problems with my charger. The charcher has a current of 2,1A, so after an hour or two the battery is fully charged

Worst product I have ever used. Pathetic Service Center.

Poor Built Quality. Poor Speakers.

The products hangs a lot. Internet Browser takes ages to load. Start up takes 2-3 mins in loading.

Any app you run will hang with a message to report or wait.

I have performed Hard Reset many times. Still same problem every day.

I took it to the Service Center... nothing has fixed it.

Agent do not respond to you call.

ASUS seems to have disowned this product. They never bother to send any patch or fix or even upgrade.

ok for the guys who's chargers are faulty
I did this to fix it
the USB charger comes in two parts one part has the socket pins and the other is the charger part
slide the pin part off the socket part ,inside the pin part there is a spring like part that is supposed to click/clip the two parts together and make contact if that clip is broken there is no contact between the pins and the charger,
inside is a screw ,loosen the screw a bit and slide the pin part back onto the charger and try and jam the two together so that the two parts can't easily be seperated
if it still loose take it apart and and loosen the screw more
let the tablet charge for at least 10 minutes if fully flat before you see something happen

Mine is running KitKat 4.4.2 through a custom rom. Yes it's highly unspported, but it works.
